Description

Welcome to Elegant Escape in Linville Ridge.  This unique, upscale mountain-elegant estate features nearly 10,000 total square feet with a large 4BR 5.5BA main house, a 1BR 2BA two-story guest cottage, and a 1BR 1BA guest apartment - each of which is private from the others, yet accessible by connecting rear decks and terraces - neither of the guest quarters is more than about ten feet from the main house.


GROUNDS & OUTDOOR LIVING
Elegant Escape is situated on about 3 1/2 total acres, set back and above the private gated roads, with a paved driveway and plenty of parking.  The two-car garage leads into the main house and is adjacent to the guest cottage.  Grandfather Mountain and the surrounding peaks are visible from the entire back yard and both levels of the rear decks and porches!  The grounds feature a gazebo, lush landscaping, natural rock features, and plenty of rolling & level yard for safe outdoor family fun.

The rear decks offer multiple levels of covered and open-air living and lounging space.  The main level decks on the main house boast a covered outdoor dining area off the Great Room and Dining Room, an open-air deck with comfortable outdoor furniture, and a covered deck off the primary master suite - all of which have Grandfather Mountain views!  Also off the Dining Room and the Kitchen is a covered deck with an outdoor grill and prep station, which connects the guest cottage to the main house. There is a front door into the guest cottage from the front parking area in addition to the main house front entry.  The main level of the guest cottage has a rear deck off of the great room. The lower rear deck is all covered and private, boasts an outdoor ping pong table and a huge 8-person hot tub, and provides access to the guest apartment entrance, as well as glass doors to the guest apartment bedroom.  The guest cottage downstairs suite also has a lower rear covered deck.

MAIN RESIDENCE
The main entrance of the main house leads into an open-concept Great Room with floor-to-ceiling windows which frame mountain views, a massive stone gas log fireplace, large HD Smart TV, and big sectional sofa.  There is a bar in the Great Room with seating, as well as a round table.  The Kitchen is a chef's dream with side-by-side Sub Zero refrigerator and freezer, two ovens (one is also a convection oven), a 5-burner gas cooktop, microwave, center island with deep oversized sink with an instant hot water dispenser faucet, pass-through to Dining Room, a built-in desk area, and a second bar top with more bar stool seating.   

The formal Dining Room features a big, banquet-style Dining Table which seats 10 guests. The adjacent round table and bar stool seating enables up to 20 guests to dine together in the Dining and Great Room area!  Wood floors greet guests throughout the Great Room, Kitchen, Bar, and Dining Room.

There is an office on the main level that is a private room with cathedral ceilings, an HDTV with Roku, and a built-in desk; it also has a King size Comfort Sleeper by American Leather and a private ensuite full bathroom, it therefore can serve as a 7th bedroom suite if desired.

Adjacent to the Great Room is a large Media Room and Den with an entertainment wall featuring a huge HDTV, lots of books, and audio equipment. Along the Media Room and toward the Master Suite is a long inner hallway with huge floor-to-ceiling windows from which you can enjoy the mountain views and can access the King Master Suite and the stairway down to the lower level. 

The spacious Master Suite features a custom larger-than-King-sized 92x80 bed, beautiful stone gas log fireplace, built-in cushioned window seating along the entire front wall, a game table for private chess or checkers in the bedroom, and a large HD Smart TV.  The glass doors lead out onto a covered deck with rocking chairs, and views of Grandfather.  There are TWO full bathrooms which serve the primary Master Suite - a "His and Hers" double bathroom set-up.  Each bathroom has a water closet with a toilet - "Hers" also has a bidet, as well as a fainting chair, a granite vanity desk, and plenty of mirrors!  "His" features a jetted Jacuzzi soaking tub, huge tile shower, and granite vanity.  They are connected so that all parts can be open, or can be closed off to provide 4 private areas within the 2 complete full bathrooms. 

On the other end of the main level is a second King bedroom suite with sliding glass doors onto a rear deck with mountain views, vaulted tongue-in-groove wood ceilings, a private ensuite full bathroom, and an HD Smart TV.   

In the center of the main level is another King suite with a huge bedroom and a full ensuite bathroom. We call this room a ‘family bedroom’ as it allows an entire family to stay in one room should you desire to do so, with a king bed, a triple bunk bed, and a pull out trundle which allows for sleeping up to six people! The room is so big it also has a leather couch to sit at for watching Roku tv or just lounging to read a book.

Also on the main level are a half bathroom/powder room with a custom sink, a laundry room with washer and dryer, and direct access from the two-car garage.

Downstairs features another King bedroom suite with a beautiful stone convex corner gas log fireplace, two wingback chairs, cushioned window seating along the entire front wall, HDTV, and an ensuite full bathroom with fully-tiled steam shower as well as a therapeutic sitting jetted soaking tub!  

Across from the downstairs King suite is an expansive, fully-equipped gym/exercise room with multiple Vectra weight/pulley machines, treadmill, elliptical, inverter, as well as some free weights and stretching/yoga equipment.  Doors from the gym and the ensuite bathroom lead out onto the lower rear deck, providing access to the hot tub, outdoor ping pong table, and the back yard.  

GUEST COTTAGE
The guest cottage is a two-story living quarters with a main level full kitchen, open living area, and game room that boasts a large wall-mounted HD Smart TV with Roku, vintage arcade game with 40 games from the 1980s and the 1990s, 12-foot shuffleboard table, and slate pool table.  Gameroom furniture allows guests to lounge in style as they enjoy TV programming or watch as family and friends enjoy playing pool, or shuffleboard!  There is a full bathroom on the main level, as well as a nice rear deck looking down at the back yard and out at the mountain views.

Downstairs features an expansive King bedroom suite with a full bathroom which has a soaking tub on one side and a shower on the other side.  The bedroom has an HD Smart TV and a desk.  Huge glass doors slide open to the mountain views from the covered rear deck and provide access to the back yard.

GUEST APARTMENT
Tucked into the rear lower level of the estate is a 1BR guest apartment.  This is separate from the main residence and from the guest cottage, although all are attached and within the overall structure.  The guest apartment also features a full kitchen, a Dining area and Living Room with a Queen sleeper sofa, an HD Smart TV, a laundry room with washer & dryer, and glass doors which lead out onto the lower rear porch, the ping pong table, and the hot tub.

A hallway from the Living Room leads to the Queen bedroom with HDTV, walk-in closet, and full ensuite bathroom with tub/shower.  

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
